Yellowbirds 7/22/11

It was the canary in the coal mine that let miners know it was safe to be underground. The tiny yellow bird, known for its song, signaled that the atmosphere was safe to breathe.

Tone Rodent 5/22/11

If Lou Reed had grown up in the Midwest and dug shoegaze and post-punk he might have formed a band like Tone Rodent. At the very least, he would have played its records very loud.

The Black Angels 4/22/11

Influenced by the '60s avant-rock of the Velvet Underground, the Black Angels' sinister sound might have you picturing the Velvets collaborating with counterculture’s other favorite celestial beings, the Hell’s Angels.

The Fleshtones 3/12/11

A great band comprises of 3 things: good musicians, good tunes and good times. Most bands only achieve 2 of the 3, but the Fleshtones merge it all into a spectacle of rock at its finest.

Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor 8/6/10

If the members of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the Black Angels hooked up to make a record then it might sound something like Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor. Dark, moody, spacey psych-rock is what this Detroit band brings to the table, and to KDHX during an exclusive live session.

Sleepy Sun 6/16/10

Stepping inside the warm environs of Sleepy Sun’s music is to encounter raw and powerful emotions, but the journey will be pleasant enough despite the challenging terrain. The San Francisco band graced the KDHX studios with its brand of carefully balanced contradictions

Mondo Drag 2/9/10

Buzzing with feedback, humming with organs, raging with electric guitars, and freaking out everything that comes in their path, Davenport, Ia. band Mondo Drag make psychedelic music in the grand tradition of Hawkwind and Blue Cheer. Blow your mind (and your speakers) with their live set at KDHX.

Bird Names 12/18/09

Chicago collective Bird Names sound somewhat demented, somewhat delightful and more than a little dreamy if said dreams rise from an unconscious haunted by ghostly guitars, horns, shakers and layers of fuzz. Hear the numinous noise during a live session on Trip Inside This House.
